Becoming a stay at home mom didn't fulfill me....and that's ok.
IF MOTHERHOOD DIDN'T FULFILL YOU LIKE YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD, THIS IS FOR YOU.
I've had probably 10 conversations in the last week with stay at home moms, working moms, moms of multiple backgrounds around this topic of not feeling completely fulfilled when they became mothers. It is only something that I have really been able to verbalize for myself within the last 6-8 months because I felt an enormous amount of guilt and shame for not feeling what I was expecting to feel ALL THE TIME and for the reaction I received from other mothers when I even whispered this was how I felt. If being a stay at home fulfills every part of who you are I say ROCK ON. If it doesn't THAT'S O.K. too.
I'm not trying to convince anyone to believe or live how I choose to. I'm encouraging women and mothers specifically to live what is true for them as mothers, women and people, regardless of what others think, expect or believe you should be doing.
Regardless of how scary it feels at times to put it out there.
Regardless of what you've done up to this point.
Expressing this has made me feel like a weight has been lifted that I didn't even realize I was carrying.
It's possible to be an AMAZING MOTHER AND MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY
It's possible to CREATE AND LIVE WHAT'S TRUE FOR YOU AND STILL LOVE YOUR CHILDREN
